GUE Fundamentals

 
GUE Fundamentals Part 1
“Begin the original dive ninja course”

This course focuses heavily on Kicking Techniques, including the back kick. Students are also given guidance on how to master buoyancy and trim, teamwork,communication, problem solving and environmental awareness. These are all key elements of a course aimed solely at making you a better diver. 

The Fundamentals course has traditionally been taught over a very intense 4 day period. While this is still an option, recently changes have been made to allow for a split course of two parts. This gives students time to refine and build confidence in technique and foundation skills before advancing through to part two. 

The GUE Fundamentals course is renowned for being one of the best investments you can make in your own diving! No other diving course focuses this heavily on both technique and theory at this level. Whether you are a course director or an open water diver GUE can offer you the route to safer and more enjoyable diving, whatever your aspirations.
